Just picked up a clearanced Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900. I am replacing a Netgear wdnr4300. After installing and properly turning on and restarting modem, router, and pc (50ft wired cat to router), I am matching the download speed previously recorded with the 4300 both wired and wireless. Wired is over 100mbps and WiFi at about 50.
However, I "feel" I should be getting better. Feel as in I don't know any better, but...
My PC build is here https://pcpartpicker.com/b/N94CmG.
Mobo is ASRock Z97 Pro3
Modem is Motorola SB6141
Router as noted above is Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900 Model R7000.
Questions: Is my mobo or router a bottleneck?
Are there settings I should change on the router to enhance either wired or WiFi speeds?
Can my mobo's integrated networking handle this router's capabilities? If not, I'm not interested in a new mobo, so...how/what can I upgrade in my box to take advantage of the new router?
What other considerations should I have?
Thanks in advance!
